Cardiology | Fellowship | Electrophysiology
The Pediatric EP team at WUSTL has several service lines, including inpatient consults, diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, and outpatient medicine along with a robust research and advocacy program. As a moderate-large EP program in the Midwest, the EP team performs over 200 cases/year (including diagnostic EP studies, transcatheter ablations, and device implants) and see >1000 clinic visits/year in EP clinics, including our specialized multidisciplinary Inherited Arrhythmia Clinic, Telemedicine Clinic and Device Clinic.
Under the supervision of an electrophysiology (EP) attending staff physician, the first-year fellow spends one month on the EP rotation and functions as a consultant for all inpatients and selected outpatients with arrhythmias. The fellow is responsible for coordinating patient management of arrhythmias including diagnosis and pharmacologic treatment, participation in esophageal electrophysiology studies, cardioversions and exercise studies, and daily review and interpretation of electrocardiograms, Holter studies, and event monitor transmissions. Fellows participate in interventional and surgical EP cases as well, such as radiofrequency ablation procedures and pacemaker placements.
